Tico Torres has rejoined his Bon Jovi bandmates on tour following back-to-back emergency surgeries. The drummer underwent emergency gall bladder surgery on September 20th after requiring an emergency appendectomy in Mexico City a little more than a week before, which sidelined him from touring duties. His first full show back was this past Tuesday, in Fresno, Calif.

Rich Scanella, who played with Jon Bon Jovi's solo group the Kings of Suburbia, filled in for Torres for the last several weeks. Bon Jovi's "Because We Can" tour runs through the end of the year, with dates left in North America, Japan and Australia.
